KUALA PILAH: A 51-year-old who was charged with allegedly slicing off her husband’s penis was given a discharge not amounting to acquittal by the Sessions Court here.
Judge Nariman Badruddin issued the order after the prosecution failed again to state when the 44-year-old victim, who had returned to Pakistan, would be present in court.
In February, Fatimah Abdullah claimed trial to committing the offence at the couple’s home in Batu Kikir near here.
She allegedly used a blade to slice off Umar Rahman’s penis at 1.30am on Jan 20.
Earlier, Fatimah, who has five children from a previous marriage, told police that she did it because she could no longer endure Umar’s “strange sexual demands”.
She said she had been tolerating it since their marriage in 2014.
Fatimah was charged under Section 326 of the Penal Code for causing grievous hurt with a weapon.
If convicted, she can be jailed up to 20 years, fined or whipped.
Fatimah is out on RM5,000 bail.
DPP Rahimah Abd Majid prosecuted while Fatimah was represented by J. Gunamalar and Parmjit Singh.
